Ollivier has traditionally been given to boys. The meaning of Ollivier is 'olive tree'. It's a symbol of peace, and the idea of peace is bestowed on those bearing the name. There are other meanings from other languages; for example, in French (Olivier) and Latin (oliva), it means 'olive tree'. The French translate it more or less directly into 'peace'. After a terrific start in medieval England, the name faded from grace until recently, when it roared back onto the top 10 name lists all over the show. For instance, in the US in 2020, it was the third most popular boys' name. It's even becoming famous in Scandinavia. Ollivier presents an easy alternative way to spell Oliver for parents.
